Fuggles & Warlock and Moody Ales - Bella Rosa Red Wheat Ale ReviewFuggles & Warlock and Moody Ales – Bella Rosa Red Wheat Ale

Fuggles & Warlock Craftworks and Moody Ales have teamed up to brew a Red Wheat Ale called the Bella Rosa. In a very cleanly labelled bottle that is not really either brewery’s style this beer looks rather refined and elegant in its simple look. Pouring the beer it is a rich amber colour with a finger or so of lightly lacing head. The aroma is not so much of wheat and more ot tropical hop character. From the aroma this comes across more as a pale ale or light IPA than a Red Wheat Ale. Brewed with a collection of tropical fruit inducing hops along with Juniper berries and two yeast strains gives this beer a very unique pine character with notes of mango, grapefruit and passion fruit on the nose. Tasting the beer is different as well. The Saison yeast comes through with a light wheat character while a toasted spiciness also builds in the tasting. Along side the tropical fruit character and pine notes build while being subdued by the toasted-spice. Finishing the flavour a bitterness builds at the back of the palate while both fruit and toasted notes linger behind. There is a ton going on in the flavour of this beer but that is also reflected in the ingredients. This beer may come across as a bit confused to some but also rather delicious.

Alcohol – 6.5%
IBU – 39
